Hi. I have never read the Bible. But I have always wanted to. There are a host of personal reasons that I feel im missing something in my life, and the one feeling I cant shake is that I need to get closer to God.
I picked up a King James Bible. I chose this version because I am also a history buff. I like the idea of knowing that this is the same bible all the great figures in history read. It is the bible the built the modern era. However, i have so little knowledge of the Bible, that it has proven just too hard to follow.
So, I got myself a New King James version. It is much easier to read, that is for sure. However, it is missing some stuff that really drew me to the particular KJV that I picked up, which had a "where to turn" section, which is perfect for someone like me, because it helps give me direction when looking for guidance at the spur of a moment. The KJV I bought was also nice and thin (very thin paper) and had a very floppy, 'old friend' feel, whereas the NKJV I got to replace it, is much stiffer, and most importantly, is missing that "where to turn" section.
The KJV that I have is published by Holman, and is 4.5" by 6.5". Its perfect in every way other than that I cant understand it enough to get as much out of reading it! (I want small, so I can carry easily)
So im hoping someone may know of a NKJV that is the above size, is nice an floppy (rounded binding), hopefully has a ribbon, but most importantly, has something like the "where to turn" section, that gives advice as to what section to read "If you are feeling...."
